"If you think Andie MacDowell is foxy, rent this. I don't & won't."
There's one thing that ruins this film for me. And the word "thing" is apt. Andie MacDowell.I'm sorry, but I just don't get the Andie thing. She's not attractive (well, okay, I'd do her, but really, is that saying anything shocking?), she's not a great actress (show me one scene in ANY movie where she portrayed anything like emotion or true pain) and when it comes right down to it she's the wrong side of 45 for a guy like Hugh Grant.
Now, Devine Brown... THAT would have been some inspired casting, but alas she was still hooching herself for crack rocks at this point.
The story is this. A bunch of friends are one by one getting married, Hugh Grant's character decides he should be following suit, but after meeting the afore-mentioned Miss MacDowell he develops a huge crush on her. Alas, Andie's getting hitched to a Scottish gent much older than she (bullshit, he's just not hiding it as well as her) and Hughbie is all crushed, so he in turn get's engaged to a wench of a woman that he doesn't love, then leaves her at the altar and goes after dream-dog again. Oh yes, don't we all feel something for this man... What a cock-knock.
So meanwhile, Kristin Scott Thomas is a sarcastic woman who can't find a man... why? Because she want's Hugh. All the other friends either die, marry or bonk.
The movie is funny. It's mostly entertaining. But when it comes right down to it the entire premise fails on Andie MacDowell's thick-ass moustache. She's just not the dream-girl who should have been in this role. Liz Hurley? That would have worked. Catherine Zeta-Jones? Yes indeed. But not "hair-lip, big-hip, old as my mom" MacDowell.A rental. A decent rental. But will someone end Andie's 15 minutes already? Or give her some roles that suit her?
